Fabric Softener Dispenser
• SOAK - lights during a soak cycle.
This dispenser automatically releases liquid fabric softener at the proper time during the cycle. To use, follow
these steps:
• WASH/RINSE - lights to indicate the washer is in
a wash or rinse portion of the cycle.
1. Pour liquid fabric softener into the dispenser using
the amount recommended on the package.
• ON - lights whenever the washer is running,
2. Add warm water to the dispenser until it reaches the
MAX line.
Bleach Dispenser
3. Do not use fabric softener with a double wash cycle.
The dispenser automatically dilutes liquid chlorine
bleach before it reaches your wash load. To use, follow
these steps:
NOTE:
• Do not stop the washer during the first spin. This will
cause the dispenser to empty too soon.
1. Measure liquid chlorine bleach carefully, following
the instructions on the bottle.
• Never pour fabric softener directly on the load. It will
leave spots and stains.
2. Add the bleach to the dispenser before adding the
load. Avoid splashing or over-filling the dispenser.
• Use the dispenser for liquid fabric softeners only.
Clean the area in and around the dispenser frequently
with hot water, detergent and a soft brush.
NOTE:
Never pour undiluted liquid chlorine bleach directly
onto the load or into the wash tub. It is a powerful
chemical and can cause fabric damage, such as tearing or color loss, if not used properly.
• If you prefer to use color-safe, non-chlorine bleach,
pour it into the wash tub with your detergent. Do not
pour non-chlorine bleaches into the bleach dispenser.
Pour liquid fabric softener into cup and
dilute with warm water.

Tips ...................................

stains, etc., see the enclosed Laundry Tips pamphlet.
....................
Loading
• Put dry, unfolded clothes loosely in the tub, up to the
Detergent
top row of holes for a maximum load.
• Do not wrap large items like sheets around the agitatoe.
• Use either liquid or granular laundry detergent. For
best results, be sure detergent is added to the
washer BEFORE the load and be sure wash water
is above 65° E
• Mix large and small items for best circulation. Wash
bulky items like blankets separately.
• When laundering permanent press items or items of
delicate construction, washable woolens or loosely
knit items, never use less than the MEDIUM water
level setting. This will minimize shrinkage, wrinkling
and pulling of seams.
• Use the correct amount of detergent for the load size,
soil level and water conditions. Use more detergent if
you have hard water and very soiled loads,
If you have soft water or a lightly soiled load, use less
detergent. (See manufacturer's instructions.)
• Wipe up any detergent spills on the washer,

• The washer will pause briefly throughout each cycle,
These pauses are normal,
• If you open the lid during a cycle, the washer will
stop. When the lid is closed and the control knob
pulled out, the washer will continue the cycle at the
point it was interrupted.

Use a soft cloth to wipe up all detergent, bleach or other
spills as they occur,
Lint Filter - these are self-cleaning and require no
maintenance. They are located under the agitator on
the bottom of the washtub, During the wash and
rinse portion of
the cycle, lint is
collected on the
filters. Then during the spin and
drain the filters
are cleaned automafically.
Clean the following as recommended:
Control Panel - clean with a soft, damp cloth and glass
cleaner. Do not use abrasive powders or cleaning
pads.
Cabinet - clean with soap and water followed with an
appliance wax, if desired.
Storing
the Washer .............................................
Washers can be damaged if water is not removed from
hoses and internal components before storage. Prepare
the washer for storage as follows:
Advance the cycle control knob to Spin and lower the
drain hose to eliminate any water that may be in the
drain hose.
• Select the NORMAL cycle for regular fabrics and add
one cup of bleach or white vinegar to a full load of
water without clothes. Run the washer through a
complete cycle.
• Disconnect the washer from the electrical supply and
leave the washer lid open to let air circulate inside the
tub.
Turn the water faucets off and disconnect the inlet
hoses.
